We were a little surprised to receive 3 pairs of this style to test, then we realised why so many were sent. The emphasis here is on colour and our test pairs came in Red, Orange and Violet. We don’t have a full list of the available colours, but clearly Fiore are not pitching to the more conservative ladies with this style.
The construction is quite straight forward, sheer straight legs with a smooth and soft finish attached to a matt boxer style brief with small sheer gusset. The seams in the brief are of good quality as are those in the reinforced toes.
Disregarding the colours entirely these are very nice well made tights. They feel smooth and soft on your legs and fit extremely well, the Lycra in the fibre provides enough stretch for longer legs and also avoids bagging, sagging and creasing at knee and ankle. There is just enough sheen to give the colour vibrancy and intensity. The colour is perfectly even.
You will certainly get noticed wearing these tights, why not create a stir at your office and wear them to work.
Our tip would be to wear these bright colours under black fishnets. The red colour in particular looks very effective.

While reviewing Levante Luxury Satin Opaque Tights we noticed that Levante said that they allowed the warm skin tone to show through. So we tried a pair of orange Fiore Sandra Tights under a black pair.
It looked and felt great.. try it!
